RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Authorities have identified a man found dead in a drainage ditch in Rapid City.

The Rapid City Police Department says employees at a car dealership discovered the body of 65-year-old James Tracke late Monday afternoon. Tracke's last known address was in Pine Ridge.

City police and the Pennington County Sheriff's Office said it appeared that Tracke had been dead for several days.

Authorities say preliminary autopsy results don't show any trauma that might have caused his death. Full autopsy results will be complete in 2-3 weeks.
